DIY security systems are all the rage these days. Simplisafe offers a plethora of motion sensors, water sensors, panic buttons, indoor and outdoor security cameras. These camera comes with the usual features -- HD-video, motion detection, streaming to your phone via an app that lets you record with the push of a button. They even use "intelligent detection algorithms" that can determine the heat signature of a human and only send alerts that matter. Use the Simplisafe app on your phone, tablet, or computer to keep tabs on everything all the time. You'll need the optional subscription plan to record, store, and share those video clips.

Was könnte passieren, wenn etwas schiefgeht?

Simplisafe seems fairly safe when it comes to your privacy and security of their indoor and outdoor security cameras. They say they don’t sell of monetize user’s personal information “in the traditional sense (i.e., get paid to share your personal information).” That sounds funny, but it’s mostly legalese required to explain things under privacy laws. They do say they share personal information with third parties for things like SimpliSafe’s Amazon Alexa Skill, Apple Watch, or Google Assistant. All these third parties also have their own privacy policies you’ll need to pay attention to. So many privacy policies!

Simplisafe doesn’t provide the option for local storage on their security cams, which is a bummer because that tends to be safer than Cloud storage. And while videos are automatically deleted from storage after 30 days, it’s not clear if you can go in and delete them yourself before then. What would happen if something goes wrong? You want to delete a video a neighbor asked you to take down, find you can't, email Simplisafe to ask them to take it down, they eventually do but now you're signed up to their email list even though you didn't want that.

Welche Daten sammelt das Unternehmen?

Wie nutzt das Unternehmen die Daten?

Simplisafe does not sell or monetize its users’ personal information in the traditional sense (i.e., get paid to share your personal information). However, it may be still selling it in the sense outlined in CCPA. The company says that "the CCPA defines the term “sale” very broadly, and it likely includes the sharing of personal information with third parties." SimpliSafe may share information with such third-party partners with your permission. Any SimpliSafe data that you choose to share with a third party, either directly or by or on behalf of SimpliSafe through the authorizations, integrations and connections permitted hereunder, is governed by that third party’s privacy policy while in that party’s possession.

Wie können Sie Ihre Daten kontrollieren?

Simplisafe mentions the right to delete data for Californian residents. It is also compliant to EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.

Wie ist das Unternehmen in der Vergangenheit mit den Daten über seine Verbraucher umgegangen?

SimpliSafe’s home security system can be compromised by a $2 wireless emitter
Cameron Faulkner
SimpliSafe’s latest home security system can apparently be fooled by an affordable wireless emitter that mimics the frequency of its door and window contact sensors. The YouTube channel LockPickingLawyer posted a video demonstrating how it can be done, and, unfortunately, it looks very easy to do — as easy as pressing a button to make sure an alarm won’t go off when someone breaks into a house.
